KIA announces digital blind spot mirror

KIA announces digital blind spot mirror

May 7, 2020 0 By autotimesnews

Kia cars get a system with which objects in the blind zone become more visible when cornering or changing lanes.

By turning the corner or changing the lane, you should always look over your shoulder to see if the blind spot is free. Modern mirrors sometimes offer a solution, but this is rarely found on cars. To help drivers in a more modern way, Kia introduces a system called Blind-Spot View Monitor, which gives an overview of what is happening in the blind spot on the toolbar, for additional control.

If you turn on the direction indicator, the image of the camera built into the external rear-view mirror will temporarily display all objects in the blind zone at the location of the tachometer or speedometer. In addition, the system also warns the driver that turning or changing lanes is a potential hazard.

According to autoweek.nl, the new technology will debut for the first time on the new Sorento as an option.
